Everyone has their own clothing style so we can't dictate to you what to wear, however when packing think whether you will actually wear everything you are putting in, try to pack layers.

Shoes: Take sandals, comfy walkers and one smart/ dressy pair.

Useful: Basic sewing repair kit and travel wash kit.

Hot climate:

  • A hat to keep off the sunstroke.
  • Light, cotton clothes that will dry overnight, and remember it can be cool in the evenings or in the mountains.
  • A sarong is particularly useful, doubling as a sheet, wrap, towel, scarf or skirt.
  • Note: In India and Muslim countries don't wear shorts and skimpy tops and instead dress in local garb or make sure the clothes you take are loose fitting and modest enough to make a Victorian grandmother nod with approval.

Cold climate:

  • thermal underwear.
  • Hat, gloves, scarf, thick socks.
  • Plenty of layers of clothing, although it may be cheaper to buy things when you get there.


Not essential but they may come in handy:

  • Camera and film(s).
  • Mobile phone & charger
  • Worldwide adaptor plug.
  • Portable hairdryer, although hotels often provide them.
  • Plastic sealable bags
